Sometimes for lunch I like a hot sandwich. Not a grilled cheese like my daughter’s favorite, but an honest to goodness amazing panini. A sandwich with all kinds of fillings that has been toasted, usually with a little cheese in the center, to crispy yet soft perfection. Alongside I’ll have a salad or some chips, and my meal is an instant hint. It is filling and satisfying, so sometimes I even make panini for dinner. We get our sandwich press out and go to town making terrific sandwiches that our whole family will eat. Coming up with new combinations is so much fun! Here are a few awesome panini recipes to get you started this fall. Serve them up for lunch or dinner, or whenever you want!
